The Idemitsu Lubricants America (ILA) SAE 0W-20 engine oil has received GM approval.
Idemitsu says it is the industry’s first engine oil to achieve the next-generation dexos-1 (known as dexos1: 2015) approval through General Motors.
“Idemitsu focused on lower viscosity oils intentionally,” said Scott Rajala, senior chief engineer at ILA. “As with our Asian OEM customers, the U.S. OEMs are now beginning to focus on the potential fuel economy savings of lower viscosity engine oils. Idemitsu developed this innovative technology with the intention of being the leader in the OEM factory fill market for fuel economy engine oils.”
